This one-week course was made of two parts: Video Techniques and Approaches to Prototyping. Each day combined both elements in the form of lectures, exercise sessions and discussions.

The course began with an introduction to prototyping approaches and strategies, followed by a series of mini exercises to expose the students to various methods and creative styles. Though there was plenty of room for creative expression, the main focus of this course was to build proficiency in handling video and knowing how and when to apply it as a prototyping tool. The course approached film-making as a sketching method and enabled students to build empathetic and functional narrative with video.

Exercise #1 & 2 – Shooting video, capturing and editing.

Exercise #3 – Create several storyboards and try to incorporate design features into it.

Exercise #4 – Represent the concept as an improvised and low fidelity video.

Exercise #5 – Prototype a service concept as a high fidelity empathetic scenario.
